SLICED SOLD


I grew weary of the approach to painting that I have been doing and decided to just pull out all the stops today when I painted. I wanted to capture the essence of the sliced tomatoes. I wanted to paint rapidly and respond to the color and shapes as quickly as I could. I was pleased with the results. I find that sometimes I get caught in the process of trying to paint what I think it should be rather than what I intuitively feel and see.

I like this. I am going to have to try to paint some fruit like this, I have not done any before except flowers.

I like this, I should try painting some fruit, never done any, just some flowers a few times.

You nailed this one, Linda - got the orangy red color that MAKE a tomato!

Gwen Bell said...

Love those juicy reds. Great job on the values and the way each stroke looks spontaneous and lively.

Kim Blair said...

I agree with Kelley, you have really captured the nuances of red and orange that make up a tomato.
Nice brush work.
